Short biography
Although he had other careers, Albert Payson Terhune is best remembered today for his novels and magazine stories on his beloved collies and other dogs, and as a dog breeder. Many of today's Rough Collies are descended from the collies he bred and raised at his Sunnybank Kennels in New Jersey. Several of his family members, including his mother, were also prolific writers. Irving Litvag wrote his biography, The Master of Sunnybank (1977, Harper & Row).
